K&N 57-Series FIPK Intake for the 1994-1996 Ford F-150 / Bronco 5.0L V8 & 5.8L V8
Once upon a time, people actually used their Sport Utility Vehicles to go off-road. Whether they needed to check out the fence line on the back-40, or get to a remote fishing/hunting/camping spot, SUV's like the 1994-1996 Ford Bronco had the chops to get them there. The fact that it could be driven on the road was an added bonus, and the Bronco's steep price tag also made it something of a status symbol. It shared its platform and engines, the venerable 302/5.0L V8, and the equally formidable 351 Windsor/5.8L V8, with America's most popular pickup, the 1994-1996 Ford F-150. Together, these two brawny Ford's helped lots of people get lots of stuff done. But their shared V8's never lived up to their performance potential, which you can rectify with a K&N 57-2543 FIPK air intake.
K&N Performance Air Intake Kit for the 1994-1996 Ford F-150 / Bronco 5.0L V8 & 5.8L V8
Back in the mid-90's, the Ford V8 was constrained by its restrictive factory air intake system. The 302 and 351 were originally designed to use carburetors, but the addition of fuel injection and emission controls led to rather poor airflow characteristics. K&N's 57-Series FIPK performance intake system, number 57-2543, is designed to replace Ford's narrow intake tube, and factory air filter box with its tiny air inlet. In its place, the K&N air intake uses a wider diameter High Density Polyethylene intake tube that feeds air directly into the throttle body. Unlike the stock piece, the inside of the K&N intake tube is completely smooth, which significantly reduces air turbulence, and its shape has been aerodynamically optimized to provide a more direct airflow path.
Since cold air contains more oxygen than warm air, cooler air enables the engine to burn more of the fuel during the combustion cycle. This stronger "explosion" allows this K&N 57-Series performance air intake system to deliver an estimated increase of 10 extra horsepower and 12 lb-ft of torque (depending on things like your engine's condition, mileage and modifications) on a 1995 Ford F150 5.0L V8.
In order to channel a high volume of cold air directly to the engine, this K&N performance air intake kit comes with a sturdy heat shield that sits in place of the stock air box. This protects the large conical K&N performance air filter from the warm air inside the engine bay, and allows the system to collect the coolest air possible. That filter also provides clean air with higher airflow than a stock paper air filter, and you won't have to clean it for up to 100,000 miles (if you drive in dusty/dirt filled environments, we recommend that you inspect the filter every 25,000 miles). Plus the entire intake system is backed by a 10-year/Million Mile Limited Warranty, so you can rest assured that it'll perform for years to come.
